Joe Biden Speaks With Accent To Imitate Call Service Employees In New Hampshire Speech

Vice President Joe Biden used an accent to imitate call service employees during a speech on Thursday.

"How many times you get the call, 'I like to talk to you about your credit card?'" Biden said during an outsourcing speech in New Hampshire, employing the accent while imitating what he referred to as employees of "call centers rushed overseas."

"Or that ad on TV, what is it? 'Nancy, this is Nancy, can I talk to a supervisor?'" Biden said, referring to a Discover ad campaign featuring a heavily-accented man who acts as a credit card company's customer service representative under the name "Peggy."

This isn't Biden's first accent gaffe. As a Delaware senator in 2006, Biden said "you cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent," sparking criticism among his peers in Washington.
